Well, I didn't chicken out, started Lemtrada the first of February 2016 for 5 days; my first time on Solumedrol and slept all day and all night. Once home, did the same thing for 2 weeks. Occasional nausea abut 3-4 times a week, using dissolvable Zofran which works almost instantly and is great. At April appt, doc said I was right where he expected, (labs I guess) and am due to see him again in September, he said I would feel much better by then. Next Lemtrada will be in February 2017 for 3 days and NO Solumedrol, am going back to Decadron.
I have to admit, I'm feeing better in general than I have in quite some time. Sorry I haven't checked in, have been busy with hubby, had 2 strokes the end of December, so we are patient helping patient!
